  1. Ants On a Ruler

    You have a one meter ruler. We will drop 200 ants on to the ruler, each ant falling at a location along the ruler which is uniformly distributed. When an ant falls, it goes left or right with equal probability. When two ants bump into each other they reverse directions. Each ant moves along the string at a speed of 1 meter per minute. How long will it take for all the ants to fall off the ruler?
